At the luncheon honoring the Spring 2018 Employees of the Season, Rainbow presented the Finance Pillar Award and People Pillar Award to two distinguished employees.

Last year Rainbow established the Pillar Awards of Excellence to recognize employees who most embody Rainbow’s six Pillars of Excellence: Safety, Service, Quality, Growth, Finance and People. Two Pillar Award are given out quarterly.

The Finance Pillar Award recognizes an employee who has contributed significantly to areas that promote this pillar, including: increasing sales volume, improving operating income, and increasing utilization of facilities. The People Pillar Award recognizes an employee who has contributed significantly to areas that promote this pillar, including: improve employee satisfaction, reduce employee turnover, and enhance staff training and competency.

Debbie May, Residential Program Manager (RPM), was chosen as the recipient of the Finance Pillar Award for her almost 30 years of service to Rainbow. As an RPM, Debbie does a wonderful job at ensuring clients feel safe and secure, all the while maintaining a sound budget at her houses. Debbie continues to find creative and cost effective ways to get every client what they need.

Above all else, Debbie is a fierce advocate for her clients and employees! In her acceptance speech, Debbie shared Buzz Wilson’s motto by reminding us all to, “Do good, do well, have fun.” Buzz Wilson helped establish Rainbow Rehabilitation Centers in 1983.

Jill Hamilton-Krawczyk, Senior Designer, was chosen as the recipient of the People Pillar Award for keeping Rainbow’s clients and employees the focus of every project that comes her way.

In every piece of work Jill touches, her goal is to produce something that shows the great work of our employees, how proud Rainbow is of the great work they do, and also shows how Rainbow is a great place for our clients. She believes in teamwork, creating collaboration, and encourages people to aim high with ideas for marketing Rainbow in a positive light.

Congratulations to Debbie and Jill! Rainbow is honored to have employees like these two.
